Subject: Fatwahs
On August 4, 1999, five Muslims men were removed from the Greyhound bus I was traveling on. The men had been on the same bus as me. In the middle of the night at a stop where everyone awake got off the bus, I stayed on, asleep. The five men were stopped in the act of smothering me to death, having told me earlier they had made a Fatwah with their religious leader to kill Americans anywhere in the world they were found, including me. Until that day, I would have thought a place like Guantanamo was a bad place, but I cannot agree with your love of these fanatics who like to kill based on nationality. I am glad there is a Guantanamo to keep me safe.

Traveling with forged documents is a CRIME, a federal CRIME. Punish the man as you would punish any other felon.

I don't need to be in Guantanamo to know what it is like to be tortured; the Muslims showed me what it is like. The men who tried to kill me traveled with forged documents, just like the guy on your newscasts of Dec 18. I bet he didn't cooperate with the guards at Guantanamo. He knew they were just like him.

All those who would protect maniac religious fanatics like the ones in Guantanamo, should invite them into their homes and be held just as responsible for any terrorism the men engage in while in their care. Instead of keeping good people safe, you have let the man go back to his country where he is now free to kill a Muslim woman for taking her scarf off on a hot day. Great.

The men who tried to kill me were never arrested by the RCMP, but instead were left to carry out their plans of destroying the WTC on Sept 11, 2001. All but one of the men who tried to kill me, were involved in the attack on the WTC. The other one is in Germany and I hope like hell he ends up in Guantanamo when he is released. I do not ever want to run into him again. Please let them have the murderer. Protect me, not him. what did I do to deserve their murderous ways?
